Internal Fraud Risks

Internal fraud (also referred to as staff fraud or insider fraud) is fraud committed against an organisation by someone employed by that organisation. Internal fraud can range from minor thefts of assets or inflated expense claims up to major diversion of funds, accounting frauds or exploitation of payroll or client data. A person employed by an organisation includes contracted employees, temporary staff, agency workers and contractors.
